A highly respected leader, Dr. Hessler completed her a rigorous 5-year Otolaryngology training at Washington University in St. Louis, MO followed by a fellowship in facial plastic surgery at the University of Michigan. Upon completion of her training, she was recruited back to Washington University, where she served as a subject matter expert in facial plastic surgery.
Dr. Hessler then moved to the Bay Area, where she founded a practice in Palo Alto, CA featuring a comprehensive aesthetic center and outpatient surgical suite. Dr. Hessler is one of very few Bay Area plastic surgeons to obtain double board certification, which requires rigorous training and a meticulous record. Her entire practice is dedicated to surgical facial rejuvenation of the face and cosmetic minimally invasive treatments of the face and body, and she has performed more than 4,000 sophisticated surgical procedures to date.
In addition to her highly recognized aesthetic practice, Dr. Hessler also serves as an adjunct clinical faculty at Stanford University and has been invited to speak at over 50 national plastic surgery conferences to teach her surgical techniques on advanced facelifting, eyelid surgery and overall facial rejuvenation. At the forefront of surgical technology including lasers and non- invasive practices, she also trains practitioners across California on advanced injection techniques of fillers and neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport. To decrease the chance of bruising and swelling from filler injections, Dr. Hessler was an early adopter of the use of cannulas and selected to lead the national FDA clinical trial for blunt tipped cannulas combined with hyaluronic acid fillers.
Dr. Hessler has also been honored with the Glasglow Women in Medicine Award and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Dr. Hessler remains committed to plastic surgery advancement and education, both locally and nationally.
